I found a boring bug in Marathon/Aleph One. When you reach the "pfhoraphobia" level, you will realize you can't end it! Some levels in Marathon are completed when you kill enemies and explore all the map, but in the Aleph One engine "explore all the map" means you have to explore really ALL the map, including secrets (!) and even unreachable areas (!!!), so you really can't end this level playing it normally. The only solution I have found, is to play the game until you reach this level, play it anyway as it really nice, when you realize you have killed all aliens and explored all the reachable areas of the map, you have to quit and start a new play using cheats to start the level next "pfhoraphobia" and refill your ammo (btw, you will have a lot of ammo at the end of "pfhoraphobia", so you are not cheating so much).

This is boring, but necessary to end the game

"The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay" on the original Xbox - I think it is a great game - really enjoying it - although the auto save function is a bit weird...

Escape From Butcher's Bay was an eye opener for me. I like the preference for stealth in stead of mindless blasting.

First Need for Speed on 3DO. Old, but still good. Animation is not very smooth or fast but I can understand it. [ Show youtube player ]

It is a rule for me; I complete this game once a year I play it on the PS2 though, but who cares.

Brilliant game.

gimba: final fantasy 7, now theres a game that brings back memories, it took me a damn year to finish that game lol

Right now i'm playing on amiga:rick dangerous and pool of raidiance (put on ice for a while, till i get my replacement a1200) and I have started to play around with a few awesome emulators like the epsxe and that has led me to start playing FFIX again, since i never finished that game back then and offcoz i'm totally hooked on a DS game, that I probly shouldn't mention, but its an old classic brought back to life and it is a wonderfull updated version, i'm certainly getting this one for my daughter when I can

Even now that I know how to get 100% completion without any guide, it still takes me friggin' 40 hours to finish the game without doing most of the extras, and 60-80 hours to finish the game 100%. It is one huge mother, especially because of the many loooong story telling sequences. The one you get when you go to Kalm for the first time is no fun at all; 15-20 minutes just going through an interactive story sequence...

On the other hand the story is a great one, so that one time a year I go for it. I compare it to seeing great movies repeatedly.

But you can skip most of those, I know a few freaks who didn't wait for the english version and got the first german version that was available here, skipped all the messages, and somehow managed to complete the game in ~15h's
They didn't knew anything about the plot but considered the game as finished.

thanks to eLowar's recommendation - D/Generation is getting a lot of play, even though I still can't... get... past... the second room.... Shatnerizing... my speech...


totally NOT eLowar's recommendation - SWOS. I'm so close to getting the controls down, I can feel it. I'm even taking shots on goal and bending... but I still lose the ball a lot. Can't wait till I 'get' this and can start a season in earnest. My friends and I all use a custom team on FIFA titled "Beerhausen". FC Beerhausen must now rise on SWOS.



not on the Amiga - Also playing a lot of Archon and AR: The City on my Atari 600XL. Mmmmm - strategy.

I also never use guides for Final Fantasy games and everytime i play, it takes me a long time to complete as i am always trying to find all the little secret bits I just found a GF called "Kjata" and i have never seen it before! It's hidden behind a tree in the sleeping forest (in the bone village). It's a great game with lots of replay value

Actually it sort of floats around You need to have a little patience in that screen to see it.

Never tried FF7, I don't like JRPG, and I know attack sequences of the GFs can't be skipped ... boring!
